Your DJI Inspire 2 can be turned into a powerful thermal imaging tool with the FLIR Touch HD Upgrade Kit. The Upgrade Kit utilizes FLIR’s Vue Pro thermal imaging camera and is the closest thing to an integrated system for the DJI Inspire 2.
The Samsung Tab A which is included with the Touch HD kit provides the ability to view a side-by-side thermal and optical feeds, making use of the DJI Go App and the VUIR HD App. While not a single application, and pulling in two separate video feeds, the result is a dual view of thermal and visual image feeds. The Touch HD Upgrade Kit is compatible with the Inspire 2 while operating in 2.4GHz mode. While engaged, the downward facing vision sensor must be switched off. HD downlink system range for the Touch HD Kit can reach up to 500 meters (1640 ft) while maintaining a strong signal - a sufficient range to gather all the data required for a wide range of operations and applications.
The DJI Inspire 2
While not directly designed as a thermal data imaging system, with the FLIR Touch HD Upgrade Kit, the Inspire 2 can do the job remarkably well. The Inspire 2 has improved recording functionality to gather the thermal data you need. The all-around exceptional flight capabilities can get you where you need to be to get the job done. The powerful sensors for safe and accurate flights mean that you can worry less about the flying, and focus on gathering the data you need. The Inspire 2 is even capable of flying in difficult weather conditions and unforgiving environments.
Obstacle avoidance features are made possible with the Inspire 2’s integrated FPV (First Person View) camera, in combination with both forward and downward vision systems. These sensors are capable of detecting potential obstacles up to 30 meters ahead. In addition, upward-facing infrared sensors are constantly monitoring airspace up to 16 feet overhead to ensure extra avoidance measures when flying indoors, under trees, or in poorly lighted conditions. All of these sensors are also engaged to ensure a safe emergency landing if needed, without GPS connection.
Other features that make the Inspire 2 stand out include advanced flight capabilities such as rapid acceleration (up to 50mph in 4 seconds), and a maximum flight speed of 58mph. This high-speed flight capability means that you can follow high-speed subjects and still achieve clear, high-quality images and video.
Image Processing System
The Inspire 2’s onboard image processing system, the CineCore 2.0 in combination with micro four-thirds sensor, means that you can count on high-resolution, sharp images, with eliminated noise and accurate colors. The 2-axis gimbal stabilizer keeps the camera steady in flight, so you can be confident of achieving smooth, blur-free shots, even at the high speeds the Inspire 2 is capable of. Often employed for shooting cinema-grade videos, the Inspire 2 is also a great option for thermal imaging when outfitted with the FLIR HD Touch Upgrade Kit. The smooth flight, and powerful image processing system will deliver only the highest quality thermal images and videos.
Intelligent Flight Modes
When you’re on a data-gathering mission, a high-speed chase, or searching for a missing person, the last thing you want to have to focus on is the ins and outs of maneuvering your aircraft. With the Inspire 2, the intelligent flight modes mean that the drone does the heavy lifting, so to speak, letting you focus on your mission.
Imaging a fleeing suspect. With your Inspire 2 in aerial pursuit, equipped with the FLIR Touch HD Kit, you can lock on to the subject, and the drone does the rest. The smart Spotlight Pro Mode utilizes visual-tracking algorithms to lock onto and follow any moving subject, even if it means flying in a complex flight path. Sensor blind spots aren’t an issue either, as the aircraft itself automatically continues to rotate even if the gimbal has reached its rotation limits. Within the Spotlight Pro Mode are two subcategories: Quick Mode, which allows the pilot to simply select the subject and begin tracking, or Composition mode, where the pilot selects the object to track and then the tracking position. Once the subject has reached the preset position, the drone begins tracking.
The DJI ActiveTrack Mode is an integral part of the Inspire 2’s capabilities, allowing the pilot to precisely track a variety of objects, whether people, animals, or even moving vehicles. This mode allows the pilot to select and program customized tracking methods for different objects under different tracking profiles.
In this mode, the FPV camera view is engaged for a separate flight view. The pilot has control over the direction of flight with simple tap commands on screen while in FPV flight view. The advantage of this is greater control of gimbal and camera view, when it’s all about the images.
Return to Home
No need to worry about finding your way home with the Inspire 2. The aircraft’s forward and downward vision systems creates and records and real-time map of its flight route. When selected, the Return to Home Mode will direct the aircraft to automatically return to its point of origin, making use of the flight map it recorded on the way out. This is crucial if it should happen to lose the video transmission signal for some reason. On the return flight, the sensors will alert the aircraft to obstacles up to 200 meters ahead to avoid any collisions. The drone will revert to flying home in a straight line as soon as it is able to reconnect to a signal.
